Free, self hosted integration If you want to use a free, self hosted version of H5P, you need to have Drupal, Wordpress or Moodle. These again require PHP. H5P will also be ported to other languages in the near future. (There is no PHP or SQL code in the H5P content types.) Make sure you have configured PHP before installing H5P. To make your site supports H5P, you need to install a plugin.
